I think it sounds great!!  I have read about some photographers who do special “elopement packages” that are significantly less expensive – you might be able to hire someone last minute!  


Have fun!

I’d probably start working on the officiant, just in case they all go out of town for the weekend!


Do you know what you’re looking for with your vows?  With you write any yoursevles?  Often officiants will have some scripts you can select and modify.

I’d go for cupcakes!  After taking our elopement wedding cake with us on our road trip, we realized we didn’t have a knife or plates, so we just picked away at it with the lone plastic fork I put in the food box.  Cupcakes would be much more convenient.

Definitely champagne!

I think you have everything covered! 

Just be sure you have logistics figured out. If you want to drive to the site together or not, and whether your cake/cupcakes and champagne is going to be waiting at your loging place. If you tell them it’s your wedding, they might be willing to set up the room with your food and all that waiting for you when you get back. I think a picnic set up somewhere with your goodies would be fun, but what do I know!

I’d encorage you to get pictures, just because they are great down the road when you can pull them out and remember your wedding getaway/elopement.

Congrats and good luck!
